Workshop is being offered in-person only

What is the Committee for Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS)? Designed for professionals who are new to this nuanced national security sector or seeking a refresher, this introductory session will discuss the basic regulatory standard necessary for a CFIUS filing. Delegates will gain an understanding of the national security reasons for CFIUS filings, the scrutiny given to filings, as well as the timelines for processing a filing. Topics will include: 

  • Under what circumstances does FIRRMA give CFIUS authority to:
    • Impose an interim mitigation agreement?
    • Require plans for monitoring compliance with mitigation agreements?
    • Determine that a current or older mitigation agreement is no longer warranted?
    • Allow for the use of third-party, independent parties to monitor agreements?
  • Calculating timelines for submitting a mandatory declaration or notice
  • Analyzing what can cause delays and how to avoid them
  • Examining basic enforcement action for non-filing and penalties

A light lunch will be served to those attending both workshops
